Fix Faded trim

so its a common problem on all of our vehicles, from the rear bumper to the roof racks. i was getting sick of seeing my jeep look really clean, but have these faded eyesore plastic bits. So i went down to Canadian tire and bought a bottle of Mothers Back to Black. it was about $9, i used half of the bottle. i did the rear bumper plastic, the part on the hatch underneath the Jeep letters, mirrors, door handles, all the rubbers around the windows, the front wiper area, and the roof racks. Wow am i ever impressed with the outcome! just a heads up, if you get it on the paint you have to use some elbow power to get it off. i aplied the product, went to the car wash, then proceeded to buff out the spots where i got it on the paint.

Wow! Thats impressive how well it brought the color back. Looks much better.

Hopefully it protects it from fading too.
